Organizer: The Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies at Royal Holloway University of London
Recent years have seen new waves of political Islamic revival in West Asian and Islamic societies, the re-emergence of sectarian struggles, and a further development of radical ideologies in the region. The growing number of organized Islamic groups which, in West Asia, represent diverse political goals, are generating tensions beyond the borders of the region. These groups and religio-political dynamics are still not fully understood by academic and policy-making communities.
This year’s conference theme engages the question of the role ‘the west’ has played in the on-going violence, and what influence these developments are having on western communities.
